Explore real Maine waterways

This full day on your own excursion shows off the best of the Maine Lakes Region!  This three lake and two stream adventure captures everything from the vast lake views to the wildlife in the streams and on the shoreline.  This excursion starts at the public launch on Crescent Lake and meanders down the Tenny River to explore all of Panther Pond with a portage at the mill street dam and through Panther Run, ending at the Sebago Trails Paddling Co. private launch.  If you’d like to continue exploring, continue into Sebago Lake itself!

Your party will follow your boat and the STPC driver to Crescent Lake, and end at the STPC launch. At the end of the day your STPC driver will escort your party back to your vehicle.

Helpful hints: is an all-day outing (up to 5PM). Packing a picnic lunch and bringing plenty of water is recommended.

Note that this trip requires one portage across the Mill St dam.  Please be prepared to carry your watercraft a short distance.  If you’re concerned this may not be possible, inform our personnel and we’d gladly suggest alternative outings that may be more suitable.
